Teachers of the Year Share Factors that Lead to Superior Teacher Leadership

 

What is needed to cultivate superior classroom instruction and leadership? More than 700 national and state teachers of the year responded to this inquiry. 

Results will be available April 30, 2014. That day, GTL Center will release From Good to Great: Exemplary Teachers Share Perspectives on Increasing Teacher Effectiveness Across the Career Continuum. 

The report is grounded in an exploratory survey that garners feedback about factors that lead to exemplary teaching. A group of leaders, including teachers and CCSSO, designed the questions. Once finished, administrators asked 755 state and national teachers of the year to participate. A total of 300 educators identified practices that molded their leadership.

Results suggest several experiences and supports create effectiveness:

High quality clinical experience with effective cooperating teachersProfessors with recent K-12 experienceAccess to mentorsAppropriate placements that matched their skill setsFormal ongoing education, opportunities for collaboration and reflection, professional learning opportunities led by individuals with recent K-12 experienceOpportunities for teacher leaders to help with professional growth

This is first large scale study that is premised on the voice of exceptional educators. The report is designed to generate a dialogue on practices that increase effectiveness for all teachers. Included in the product launch is a discussion starter tool for SEA staff and other education leaders.

Stay tuned! Materials will be posted to SCEE when released

Does Reading on Computer Screens Affect Student Learning?

The evidence is largely anecdotal, and the research is inconclusive, but many professors say reading online clearly hampers students’ ability to take in what they study.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, June 23, 11:04 AM

"A few studies have found little difference in retention when students read on a screen versus in print, though one, from Norway’s University of Stavanger, did suggest that high-school students remember less when they read a text digitally.


Some evidence exists that when students multitask (or are faced with the temptations of internet access), their comprehension dips. But as of yet, it’s unclear what role screens play in that outcome."

ASCD Express 11.20 - A Road Map for Creative Instruction

ASCD Express 11.20 - A Road Map for Creative Instruction | AdLit | Scoop.it
Students who learn in a creative environment, are exposed to creative activities and assignments, and observe their teacher modeling creative thinking will become more creative thinkers (Sternberg & Williams, 1996). A creative learning environment that embraces students and engagement along with critical thinking and creative thinking skills is essential to student achievement (Boykin & Noguera, 2011, 2012; Marks, 2000, as cited in Jensen, 2013). To plan the instruction that matches your creativity nurturing classroom enviornment, first identify the nonnegotiables. The nonnegotiables consist of the curricular standards, the required content, and the skills that are the target of a lesson (Drapeau, 2004). Then, choose one of four roads on the Creativity Road Map or combine roads to intentionally integrate creative instruction with content.

 Embedding standards into pbl

Below you will find twelve ideas to keep in mind in order to ensure that a PBL unit contains those important content standards.

The entry event or launch should show a relationship to the Driving/Investigative Question promoting a “need to know” of the standards and content.
The Driving/Investigative Question should allow students to uncover the curriculum standards in a student friendly and understandable manner.
Any PBL planning sheets and activities for students should line up with the standards and content in the curricular area being studied and assessed.
The project should be ongoing and made up of activities and lessons that facilitate the learning of significant content.
Formative learning activities and assessments that teach and reinforce the significant content should be mapped and occur throughout the timeline of the project.
While innovative and student-centered learning is encouraged, the scaffolding of the project can still include traditional lecture, tests, and textbook readings that promote significant content. Yes… rich engaging lectures can be used!
The map should include a wide range of Bloom’s levels and deeper learning opportunities.
There should be rubrics developed that evaluate student learning outcomes and they should be aligned with the significant content.
The final project should not only emphasize the content standard verbs (21st century skills) but should show the learning and understanding of significant content.
The final project should demonstrate student understanding and learning of the standards and content.
Since learning is embedded throughout the project, consider the number of standards when determining the length of the project.
Remind students the importance of learning about and understanding the content standards throughout the project. This can be facilitated by providing important formative and summative assessment that ensures accountability

The Surprising Research About Students and Listening Skills - A.J. JULIANI

The Surprising Research About Students and Listening Skills - A.J. JULIANI | AdLit | Scoop.it
Often in our schools and classrooms, we ask students to “look here” or “listen up” in order to learn. It’s not always (thank goodness) looking and listening to a teacher. It could be looking at a video, listening to a classmate, looking at a picture, or listening to a book read out loud. In fact, much of the learning we do in school is based on the encoding processes of looking and listening. Although our five senses all play a role in learning, these two are some of the most important (and most used) inside of schools.

Yet as a teacher, I can’t count how many times the bell would ring and I would be left wondering if my students heard anything in that particular class.

When I reflect on my own learning, I see this as well.  There are many times I am “present” in a learning situation, only to find that I had a different experience than a peer sitting right next to me. Sometimes this happens as my wife and I watch a movie. I’ll see something that she didn’t catch, or she’ll hear a conversation that I missed.
